Virtue preserv'd from fell destruction's blast,
  Led on by heaven, and crown'd with joy at last.
      - [Virtue]

Virtue that transgresses is but patched with sin; and sin that amends is but patched with virtue.
      - [Virtue]

Virtue's office never breaks men's troth.
      - [Virtue]

Virtue, as it never will be moved,
  Though Lewdness court it in a shape of Heav'n;
    So Lust, though to a radiant angel link'd,
      Will sate itself in a celestial bed,
        And prey on garbage.
      - [Lust]

Wait for the season when to cast good counsels upon subsiding passion.
      - [Advice]

War 'twixt you twain would be as if the world should cleave, and that slain men should solder up the rift.

Watch thou, and wake when others be asleep, to pry into the secrets of the state.
      - [Politics]

We are gentlemen,
  That neither in our hearts, nor outward eyes,
    Envy the great, nor do the low despise.
      - [Gentlemen]

We bring forth weeds when our quick minds lie still.
      - [Indolence]

We defy augury; there is a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all.
      - [Fate]

We have some salt of our youth in us.
      - [Youth]

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
      - [Future]

We must be brief when traitors brave the field.
      - [Brevity]

We must be gentle now we are gentlemen.

We must be neat; not neat, but cleanly.
      - [Neatness]

We must be patient; but I cannot choose but weep, to think they should lay him i' the cold ground.
      - [Graves]

We must follow, not force Providence.
      - [Providence]

We must love men, ere to us they will seem worthy of our love.
      - [Brotherhood]

We must not rend our subjects from our laws, and stick them in our will. Sixth part of each? A trembling contribution! Why, we take from every tree lop, bark, and part o' the timber; and though we leave it with a root thus hacked, the air will drink the sap.
      - [Taxes]

We must speak by the card, or equivocation will undo us.
      - [Speech]

We must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
      - [Opportunity]

We often see, against some storm,
  A silence in the heavens, the rack stand still,
    The bold winds speechless, and the orb below
      As hush as death.
      - [Storms]

We wound our modesty, and make foul the clearness of our deservings, when of ourselves we publish them.
      - [Boasting]

We'll leave a proof, by that which we will do,
  Wives may be merry, and yet honest too.
      - [Wives]

We're not ourselves when Nature, being oppressed, commands the mind to suffer with the body.
      - [Melancholy]
